Heres the three position reclining rocking chair I designed and made while working with Thomas Dutels shop named the Albatross! Its solid heart pine reclaimed from damaged New Orleans homes. The design started as a two person rocker then an architect friend stopped by and sat in the original and said his preference would be a chair thats backrest sat more toward 90 degrees. since these chairs weren’t already sold this inspired me to get experimental and make a chair thats back was adjustable! Thanks Thomas for letting me do that!

Wow, there is a lot going on there.
I’ve seen a lot, but I have to admit, this is the first adjustable rocker.
Nice going !
